Happy Birthday Jesus ~
As you well know, we are getting
closer to My Birthday. Every year there is a celebration in my honor and I think
that this year the celebration will be repeated.
During this time there
are many people shopping for gifts, there are many radio announcements, TV commercials,
and in every part of the world everyone is talking that my birthday is getting
closer and closer.
It is really very nice to know, that at least once a
year, some people think of me. As you know, the celebration of my birthday began
many years ago. At first people seemed to understand and be thankful of all that
I did for them, but in these times, no one seems to know the reason for the celebration.
Family and friends get together and have a lot of fun, but they don't know
the meaning of the celebration. I remember that last year there was a great feast
in my honor. The dinner table was full of delicious foods, pastries, fruits, assorted
nuts and chocolates. The decorations were exquisite and there were many, many
beautifully wrapped gifts. But, do you want to know something? I wasn't invited.
I was the guest of honor and they didn't remember to send me an invitation.
party was for me, but when that great day came, I was left outside, they closed
the door in my face .. and I wanted to be with them and share their table. In
truth, that didn't surprise me because in the last few years all close their doors
to me. Since I wasn't invited, I decided to enter the party without making any
noise. I went in and stood in a corner.
THEY WERE ALL DRINKING; THERE WERE
SOME WHO WERE DRUNK AND TELLING JOKES AND LAUGHING AT EVERYTHING. THEY WERE HAVING
A GRAND TIME. BUT THAT'S NOT HOW I WANT MY BIRTHDAY CELEBRATED.
To top it
all, this big fat man all dressed in red wearing a long white beard entered the
room yelling Ho-Ho-Ho! He seemed drunk. He sat on the sofa and all the children
ran to him, saying: "Santa Claus, Santa Claus" as if the party were
in his honor!
At midnight all the people began to hug each other; I extended
my arms waiting for someone to hug me and do you know no-one hugged me. Suddenly
they all began to share gifts. They opened them one by one with great expectation.
When all had been opened, I looked to see if, maybe, there was one for me. What
would you feel if on your birthday everybody shared gifts and you did not get
one? I then understood that I was unwanted at that party and quietly left.
year it gets worse. People only remember the gifts, the parties, to eat and drink,
and nobody remembers me. I would like this Christmas that you allow me to enter
into your life. I would like that you recognize the fact that almost two thousand
years ago I came to this world to give my life for you, on the cross, to save
Today, I only want that you believe this with all your heart.
want to share something with you. As many didn't invite me to their party, I will
have my own celebration,a grandiose party that no one has ever imagined,a spectacular
party. I'm still making the final arrangements..
Today I am sending out
many invitations and there is an invitation for you. I want to know if you wish
to attend and I will make a reservation for you and write your name with golden
letters in my great guest book. Only those on the guest list will be invited to
Those who don't answer the invite, will be left outside. Be
prepared because when all is ready
you will be part of my great party.
you soon. I Love you!
True Meaning of Christmas...
she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid
him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn. And in the same
region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by
night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone
around them, and they were filled with fear. And the angel said to them, Fear
not, for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy that will be for all the
people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ
the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling
cloths and lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude
of the heavenly host praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased! When the angels
went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, Let
us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has
made known to us. And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and
the baby lying in a manger.
